Sharing a Verde Taco Chicken Bowl Recipe

Sharing a Verde Taco Chicken Bowl Recipe
28 August, 2015 / 0 Comments

I am a huge fan of this recipe!  It’s definitely one of my favourites and it always get repeated in our meal plan. Why I love it I love these types of recipes that are meals in themselves.  No need to plan a side with this one.  And if you cook your rice in a second slow cooker like I do, there are no annoying extras required.  Just pop it in the slow cooker and it’s ready whenever you plan it for!  No extras required at the end of the day (except adding the cheese, of course, but that’s easy).  Ahh convenience!

The Martian by Andy Weir My Copy: Audiobook Publication Date: March, 2013 Publisher: Podium Publishing Source: Purchased Six days ago, astronaut Mark Watney became one of the first people to walk on Mars.

Chances are, though, he won’t have […]


My Nails This Week: French Tip with Pink and Black Twist

My Nails This Week: French Tip with Pink and Black Twist
19 August, 2015 / 3 Comments

This design was inspired by a local nail artist.  I used to go get gel nails done and my esthetician did a design similar to this.  It’s not identical, as (1) I can’t remember exactly what the design looked like, it was so long ago, and (2) I’m not a professional!  But, I think it turned out pretty cool-looking in any event. What I used to accomplish this look: Seche Vite Dry Fast Top Coat Sally Hansen Hard as Nails Xtreme Wear “Black Out” OPI Color Paints “Pen & Pink” Seche “Rose” OPI Color Paints “Purple Perspective” #1 Nail Striper […]

Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly meme hosted by The Broke and the Bookish every Tuesday.  Every week it’s a different topic and those of us who decide to join in share our top ten for the week’s topic!

Perfectly Damaged by E.L. Montes My Copy: eBook, 327 pages Publication Date: May, 2014 Publisher: Self-Published Source: Purchased Schizoaffective disorder: a mental illness in which a person experiences a combination of mood disorder and schizophrenia symptoms.

Hallucinations. All of which force me to question if what I’m experiencing is even reality. But here I am, still hanging on, still breathing and living through it. That is, until he […]

5 August, 2015 / 6 Comments

This is my first time using OPI Color Paints and I’m already in love!  I was so excited when this collection came out because it’s so good for fun and easy nail art.  I can’t wait to do more with these new polishes!  First up with this collection: This was a super simple design to create.  I only used the normal brushes that came with the polishes.  I started with the purple on the tips and then used the pink and just blended them together.  Since it’s not meant to be perfect to for all the nails to be the […]
